    @jackieblack - Love the quote in your signature.  I just had to comment/wave at a fellow member of the “Church of Wittertainment”.  Those two have kept me entertained for hours on long journeys - I bless the Friday that I first heard them (in 2008), while driving back from working on Humberside to London.  Now, in Lockdown, we download the podcast and sit together to listen.

    - Pip. (Hello to Jason Isaacs.)
    Sorry to disappoint, but I don’t know anything about that 😳

    I got the quote from The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - Sonny Kapoor says “In India, we have a saying – everything will be all right in the end. So if it is not all right, it is not yet the end.” I have also read that John Lennon said it too 🤷🏻‍♀️
    I use it quite often when I, or someone I know, is going through a rough patch.  I find it helps me.
    Mark Kermode says it all the time, on the Kermode & Mayo Film Review on BBC Radio 5.  That's where I got from.

    Cheers

    Pip

    I don't know.  But it would be great if you could.  Please let me know if someone confirms that you can.

    I get most of my eco-stuff from this little store, it's a family from Yorkshire and love their ethos, no plastic at all and everything ethically sourced, plus their prices are really honest: www.earthbits.com I recently got their kitchen ecofriendly brushes together with a washing up natural soap and it's so great to have zero plastic around my kitchen sink!

    Startled to discover that despite the pandemic, we still have a zero waste shop open! Planet B is a smashing corner, and even if only one person is allowed in at once, you feel safe & surrounded by good things.

    As a birthday treat, I am getting an Anglepoise lamp (& the bits to refurbish it) - I should end up with a lamp that retails for £199 for under £70, with bonus bragging rights!
